[VERSE 1]
G CLet me sing to you all the old songs I know
C7 DOf the wild, windy places locked in timeless snow
Em DAnd the wide, crimson deserts where the muddy rivers flow
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CCome along with me to some places that I've been
C7 DWhere people all look back and they still remember when
Em DAnd the quicksilver legends, like sunlight, turn and bend
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CWalk along some wagon road, down the iron rail
C7 DPast the rusty Cadillacs that mark the boom town trail
Em DWhere dreamers never win and doers never fail
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CI'll sing of my amigos, come from down below
C7 DWhisper in their loving tongue the songs of Mexico
Em DThey work their stolen Eden, lost so long ago
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CI'll tell you all some lies, just made up for fun
C7 DAnd the loudest, meanest brag, it can beat the fastest gun
Em DI'll show you all some graves that tell where the West was won
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CAnd I'll sing about an emptiness the East has never known
C7 DWhere coyotes don't pay taxes and a man can live alone
Em DAnd you've got to walk forever just to find a telephone
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
G CLet me sing to you all those old songs I know
C7 DOf the wild, windy places locked in timeless snow
Em DAnd the wide, crimson deserts where the muddy rivers flow
C GIt's sad, but the telling takes me home
